For folks looking to begin a career in birth work, or whom are interested in reclaiming the practice of supporting & sitting with community members experiencing pregnancy, loss &/or postpartum, I offer structured mentorship.
Our mentorship experience will be centered around inclusive and culturally affirming practices. The philosophy I operate from is rooted in advocacy & community oriented, trauma-informed care.
I only accept 1-2 mentees per year & expect to work with each person for 6-12 months. All payments made towards mentorship are put into the Therapy/ Doula Scholarship Funds I offer.
Perinatal Therapist Mentorship
I have a passion for mentoring providers who desire to, or are currently working as mental health professional that want to serve the perinatal population.
Mentorship includes learning how to provide services responsibly & sustainably from a trauma informed lens, with an awareness for systemic influences that impact the perinatal population.
I only accept 2-3 mentees per year & anticipate mentorship will last 6-12 months.
Full Spectrum Birth Work
A full spectrum birth worker (also known as a doula) is trained to support folks through a variety of reproductive experiences. I am a trained death doula, labor & postpartum doula & loss doula.
All people deserve safe, informed & empowering reproductive experiences. As your doula I support
your preferences & autonomy, creating an environment where you are respected & honored.
For 13 years I've served as a doula, many of those years attending 1-4 births per per month, 10
months out of the year. In 2017 I was named "Outstanding DTI Doula" by Doula Trainings International as one
of 8 selected doulas from all over the world. The nominees were chosen because "of the outstanding
commitment they show in advocating & providing inclusive, compassionate & intentional doula services".
Currently, I am only accepting repeat labor doula clients or clients on a case by case basis.
